Ted Cruz: "On The Issues"

Ted Cruz has been spotlighted in public view with his crusade against business-as-usual 'Washington Cartel'. He is a constitutionalist and spoke out against the US Supreme Court legislating from the bench regarding ObamaCare and Same-Sex Marriage issues. Since he uses the Constitution as a guideline, he has stated that marriage issues should not be addressed at federal level, but at state level. He has opposed the growing bureaucracy of the federal government and the sad state our foreign affairs are in.
